OriginGPS is making available the first samples of its OriginGPS 1410 GPS receiver. The OriginGPS 1410 is 10 x 10 millimeters in size and has an active integrated antenna. The ORG1410 is a complete GPS SysteminPackage (SiP), which allows high-volume, cost-sensitive applications to achieve high levels of integration and sensitivity, combined with low power consumption and an ultra-compact footprint, OriginGPS said.

OriginGPS is able to offer the first samples and development kits for this benchmark product through its representatives across the world. These representatives support customers with design support and manufacturing services that will allow customers to push their products’ GPS capabilities to new levels of performance and functionality, OriginGPS said.

The integration of a SiRFstarIV GPS processor enables the ORG1410 to operate in challenging GPS environments, such as tracking indoors or when the end-user is on the move. This high level of GPS performance is achieved by using GPS firmware that can detect changes in context, temperature, and satellite signals, and opportunistically update its internal parameters that enable the ORG1410 to deliver near-continuous navigation, the company said.

Within its 10 x 10 millimeter package, the ORG1410 integrates an active antenna; RF shield; TCXO and RTC crystal; LNA and SAW filters; and UART, SPI or I2C host interfaces, while achieving ultra-low power consumption of less than 15mW and a fast position fix of under 1 second and sensitivity of 163dBm.

A limited number of ORG1410 samples, in addition to development kits for leadcustomers, are available immediately.
